Tech giant Microsoft on Monday said it has set up a new development centre in Noida – its third such facility in India – that will serve as an engineering and innovation hub. The announcement comes ahead of the visit of CEO Satya Nadella slated for later this month.
The company, however, did not disclose the investment being made for setting up the centre. The IDC-NCR will be home to the company’s engineering teams across various technology groups, including Microsoft’s Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Research Group, Cloud and Enterprise Group, and Experience & Devices Group, along with Core Services Engineering and Operations, the statement said. It will also house Mixer, Microsoft’s live streaming gaming platform team, becoming the first centre to host the gaming team outside the company headquarters in Redmond, United States.
